Since Tuesday’s post was kind of one sided, here’s a little something for all of the men that follow Reading Has Purpose (I know you're out there!).
This turned out to be the year that several worldclass athletes decided to speak their truth. All of these books were published in 2013! You may want to add a few to your wish list this holiday season!
Earl the Pearl: My Story by Earl Monroe and Quincy Troupe
*Undisputed Truth by Mike Tyson and Larry Sloman
Dr J: The Autobiography by Julius Erving and Karl Taro Greenfeld
Becoming Mr. October by Reggie Jackson and Kevin Baker
Driven: From Homeless to Hero, My Journeys On and Off Lambeau Field by Donald Driver
*Mike Tyson recently completed a nationwide tour, Undisputed Truth: Live on Stage. I saw the show when he came to DC. The monologue, directed by Spike Lee, has been made into an HBO film and it debuts on Saturday Nov 16. If you’re a Tyson fan, it will be worth it to tune in!
